The Long Evening Charity Song

We are so honored that The Long Evening have created a song to raise money to support The Y Theatre, which is currently closed.

The Long Evening are a singer-songwriter collective based in Leicester who have regularly used The Y Theatre as a place to showcase their talents and perform. 

The song they have made is called Leave The Ghost Light On and is available to listen here!

They have asked if you enjoyed the song to please make a donation here to help support The Y Theatre.

The song is written and produced by Richard Leverton and features Hannah Torrance lead vocals, Rachel Wheeler backing vocals and Steve Archer on bass.  A big thanks to all three for putting their creativity into this!

You can find out more about what The Long Evening are up to on their Facebook page.

Y Theatre receives Cultural Recovery Fund

We’re so excited that The Y Theatre will receive money from the Government’s Cultural Recovery Fund. It is a Covid specific fund for arts, heritage and culture and is awarded by Arts Council England. The money will help us to get Leicester’s oldest theatre back up and running in the coming months. We are so grateful to the public who have also joined our efforts to save our theatre.

We’re looking forward to welcoming the community back.
